|''Make Mine Music'' - Misc episode|
A late-1940s music TV series which aired in a 15-minute time-slot. Lots of songs. Most people will find this boring, but I find it charming. May also be an early example of an electric guitar appearing on TV (am I correct?). This aired live. Note: my usual DVD ripper wouldn't rip this properly, so I had to use an inferior ripper. Picture quality is below my usual standards. This aired without a copyright notice, so I expect it is public domain, though the songs performed are still copyrighted.

|The Fred Waring Show - 8 October 1950|
An episode of "The Fred Waring Show". This variety show is a mixed bag. The highlight is the fun and entertaining "Autumn in New York" sequence (sadly with some sprocket-hole damage). The low-point is the entire second-half, which recreates a turn-of-the-century minstrel show. It's embarrassing, but even if I were to ignore the out-dated blackface, it just plain isn't funny. Painfully corny. Then again maybe you'll like it...

|Presents Dorothy Collins - Matthew Paul Argall|
Just some video I (Argall) edited together, with clips of Dorothy Collins singing songs on the "Your Hit Parade" series, as well as a few of her Lucky Strike commercials. Yes, I realise this video has a silly title...but it's a catchy title, much like some of the songs she sings. (note: while the "Your Hit Parade" TV series is public domain, the compositions she performs are still copyrighted. So maybe not a wise idea to upload it to YouTube)
